The Survey of the Naga-Munipuri boundary is by this time complete, and Captain Butler with Major Godwin Austen are now free to make for the Patkoi under the somewhat extensive and hazy instructions of the Government of India. They will hardly this season make their way through the 170 miles of unexplored highlands lying behind Seebsagur and Luckimpore, and between the Naga Hills district and the Patkoi Pass.
